Many natural treatments are effective for safely eliminating moles. These treatments include the topical application of tonics including apple cider vinegar and others. These treatment options are safe but may still cause slight skin irritation if not applied appropriately.
What Are Moles?
Moles are common growths on the skin that typically appear black to brown in color. Moles may occur individually or in groups anywhere on the skin. Most moles appear in the early years of one’s life but may continue changing or growing later in life.
Moles are caused by the growth of several cells in a cluster rather than being spread out. As the cells are concentrated so is the pigment naturally found in the skin, causing the dark color of moles. Additional life changes may also cause the change of moles.
Natural Mole Removal Remedies
Mole removal involves the careful application of effective treatments. Apple cider vinegar and garlic can be applied directly to a mole and function essentially to burn the mole to eliminate it. Additionally, iodine functions in the same way but is much less abrasive than vinegar or garlic.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a natural diluted acid. As such, the vinegar works to safely burn a mole and removes it. Treatment generally involves daily application of apple cider vinegar to the mole until it has turned black and become a scab that falls off.
Garlic is an herb used for treating a variety of health conditions. Concerning moles, garlic’s natural enzymes break down the clusters of cells that cause moles. Additionally, garlic works to naturally lighten the pigmentation in moles.
Iodine is a naturally occurring element that aids in the regulation of the thyroid and other hormones. When applied topically to a mole, iodine penetrates the cells and naturally eradicates them.
While moles are common, their appearance may be disconcerting for some individuals. Natural treatments can effectively eliminate moles without the need for surgery or other more invasive treatments.

[YEA] After reading the mole remedies on this site, I decided to seperately test the Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic and Iodine on three different moles. These are my results:
ACV--It completely removed one mole in 5 days. After "scratching" the mole with a clean needle, I soaked a small piece of cotton in ACV and placed it on the mole with a bandaid on it overnight (did this for 5 nights). During the day, I dabbed ACV on it a few times. During this time period, the once raised mole (the size of a pea) became flat, then black, then peeled off like a scab. The only problem was that I did not protect the skin around the mole with vaseline, because I couldn't get the bandaid to stick to my skin if I used it. Because of this, the skin around the mole became quite burned. It looks pretty bad! I'm trying to heal it up with Coconut Oil. But, personally I'd rather have a little burned skin than a nasty mole!
Garlic--the garlic worked pretty fast on another pea-sized mole, but again, I burned myself by not protecting the surrounding skin. And I really disliked smelling like garlic all day! The garlic worked in two days. The mole puffed up and blistered and then came off like a scab. Beware--this stuff really burns, so watch out for the healthy skin!
Iodine--I had a slightly-raised mole that basically flaked off after 7 days of using iodine on it 3 times per day. It takes a little longer to work than garlic or ACV, but NO burning!
With each of these remedies, I scratched the mole with a needle before applying the stuff. I think that helps to really get the substance in the mole in order to breat it down. Also, where the moles have fallen off I have scars. One of the rather large moles made a keloid-type (red, raised) scar. I'm applying Coconut Oil to all of these hoping to speed along the process. Finally, I tried these remedies on moles on my body--not my face. I can't recommend doing that, unless you understand you will have a noticable scar.
